Bottled, dated 12.02.14 BB 12.06.14 at 5.2%, large sample. Slight hazy golden color, short slight off-white head. Aroma of fresh grassy and flowery hops, hint of citrus. Like opening a sealed bag of hops for brewing. Medium bitter in taste, slight biscuity malt, citrussy, grassy and a bit piney bitterness. Lovely stuff, which makes the hop shine. Great for homebrewers as well, to learn the hops.
